to it but house speaker john boehner has said on multiple occasions saying we're moving ahead on our own immigration measures. they have voted on measures on everify and more border security amendments. the house has their own ideas and they're faction in the gop who will never get on board to the path to citizenship and john boehner said i'm not bringing anything to the floor that doesn't get a majority of my caucus on board. >> you have to wonder if those who oppose this are looking down the road. if it didn't get passed by the house, interpret what happens with the latino voters moving on. >> they nooned that we need to do better outreach. the problem is that works on big national scale, on a presidential election because they are fast growing group that care about this issue. in these individual districts it's not that important and i think the members understand that. if this doesn't pass, i think you'll see the democrats and president obama try to use this next year in the congressional elections as an issue to really win more democratic seats. down the road in 2016 you see people

,500. and who is their leader of the super villain? john boehner, the speaker of the house! you know, it might be fun to think he's the zod to president obama's superman. but, really, we think he's a little more like gru, you know him, from "despicable me," grand ambitions, minions he can never really keep in line. speaker boehner brought the house's version of the $940 billion farm bill to a vote on thursday, expecting to it pass, and it failed with 62 republicans voting against it. the vote was a shock, as usually house speakers don't bring major controversial bills to the floor unless they know they're going to pass. republicans tried to blame it on democrats, saying they failed to deliver the 40-votes promise. and house majority leader eric cantor even said he was, quote, extremely disappointed that democrats chose to derail years of bipartisan work. but even if gop leadership had those votes, the bill still would have failed. now, i certainly don't envy john boehner's job, corralling house republicans actually does seem a lot like trying to rely on an army of fictional, nonverbal minions

up for what you thing is right. >>> in politics you might say john boehner has a lot of skin in the game. tan skin, yes, but it's in the game. would he will willing to let an immigration bill come to the floor of the house without a lot of republicans behind it. he seals to be behind that. >>> a tip could lead to the last resting place of jimmy hoffa. yes, we're doing that story again. you deserve more than justo flexibility and convenience. so here are a few reasons to choose university of phoenix. our average class size is only 14 students. our financial tools help you make smart choices about how to pay for school. our faculty have, on average, over 16 years of field experience. we'll help you build a personal career plan. we build programs based on what employers are looking for. our football team is always undefeated. and leading companies are interested in our graduates. we'll even help you decorate your new office. ok. let's get to work. just want to say, i bundled home and auto with state farm, saved 760 bucks. love this guy. so sorry. okay, does it bother anybody els

charlie dent is a good guy but he's voting for john boehner for speaker and john boehner is the one that controls this legislation. if nancy pelosi was speaker, none of this stuff would get to the floor. a light will go on in the voters' heads saying, that's right, i like charlie but i got to get rid of him. >> if we're talking grand strategy here, jeffrey toobin points out the supreme court may hear an abortion case in its next term. if there is a danger here it is not just to the republican party's chances of become being the same party, but also to roe v. wade. this is part of after bigger strategy of sort of peeling back the layers of the decision one by one by one. >> that's right. again, katrina mentioned it, the threats are not only in congress. the threats are at the state level. oh oh legislature is passing a budget that would essentially end access for women to care for family planning centers, particularly planned parenthood, that would prohibit rape crisis centers from advising women about their legal rights to an abortion. there are a whole string of things. we had kans

for the senate bipartisan gang of eight bill in the house. john boehner called the trigger mechanisms from border security in that bill laughable. that's a huge rebuke to marco rubio who could be the standard bearer? 2016 to have the republican senator call it laughable. that doesn't boyd well in the house. lastly i'll say this, joy. what has been the one thing that has made john boehner and the house republican congress have to go to the table and have to work? it's been deadlines. it's been them being in the corner with a gun to their head that if they do not act, then something horrific happens. there's no deadline on immigration reform. it's not like if they don't get it done by this date that suddenly the flood gates will open and they have no say in the process. they conceivably could sit on this all the way until the fall and then we have to face a debt limit crisis. this goes on the back burner. what the republicans will say is look, we tried with our piecemeal approach. democrats weren't listening to us. we tried and we're sorry. honestly how that plays out in 2014, 2016, a lot of house

john boehner says he won't bring immigration to the house floor absent a majority of republican supporters. is that going to kill the bill and let the right wing of the republican party take control of the whole party? the republican resistance to immigration reform has material for john oliver of the daily show". >> how will they manage to make this bill bipartisan? because it's a win-win. good for republicans because they think it will win them hispanic votes. and good for democrats because they it will actually win them hispanic votes. >> that is really well said. that and more in the sideshow. this is "hardball," the place for politics. i do a lot oresearch on angie's list before i do any projects on my home. i love my contractor, and i am so thankful to angie's list for bringing us together. find out why more than two million members count on angie's list. angie's list -- reviews you can trust.

it was not secure enough. john boehner called some of the provisions laughable earlier this week. this group of senators came up with this idea, all right, why don't we do this. why don't we double the size of the u.s. border patrol, have 700 miles of border fernsing and make the e verify program stronger and whatnot. it's been dub ad border surge plan. it's something that schumer, mccain pushed back on last week saying no we can't go that route. but now maybe this is the only way we can get that magical 70 number that we need to have in order to push the house gop forward perhaps this is the way to do it and democrats are saying right now maybe we're not giving away the entire farm, if you will by going with this approach. >> senator john cornyn brought together his ideas for border security that had been dubbed a bit too costly. other people dubbed that to be poison pill. why has there bean reversal. why have they been able to carve out the fund and been able to agree with more border security. >> it made it so incredibly difficult to get to the pathway to citizenship and that really is th

that john boehner had no idea it was going to fail, brought it it up expecting it to pass and we're blind sided by the thing they were supposed to be in control of. >> part of the problem there, and i think this is what could happen with the immigration bill, they kept moving it further and further to the right. the democrats said we're not going to vote for this. they didn't have votes on some amendments that would have been poison pill early on. the last one was a work for food stamps program. that was the straw that basically broke the camel's back. this is what sort of killed this thing. we had this vote, democrats abandoned it and we no longer had votes. >> when we made things too right wing and they told us if you do that, we won't vote for it. whacky. the only rule i could never be speak ere of the house, i i know what rule to abide by. you have to be able to count. john stanton, thanks for being here. >> it's a pleasure. >> we'll be right back. for a cy where over seventy-five percent of store management started as hourly associates. there's opportunity here. i can use walmart's e
